Nemo Link, the first electricity interconnector between the United Kingdom and Belgium, has performed very well during its first two years in operation.
The submarine cable was available over 97.5% of the time during its first two years in service, making it one of the most efficient installations of its type in the world.
Some 12 TWh of electricity was exchanged between the two countries, mainly from Belgium to the UK. Nemo Link provides more opportunities for balancing grids.
The Nemo Link cable – which connects Bruges, Belgium to Richborough, UK – is the result of a joint venture between National Grid Interconnector Holdings Limited, a subsidiary company of the UK’s National Grid Plc, and the Belgian Elia group.
